Through the ages, flowers have been worn on clothing for a host of reasons. They were thought to ward off evil spirits, keep people healthy, and send covert messages to secret admirers. Corsages originated in the 16th and 17th century - the full name of the flowers was "bouquet des corsages", but was eventually shortened to simply corsage. They were traditionally worn in the center of the bodice of the dress, then moved to one side. Boutonnieres were worn for much the same reason as the flowers, primarily to ward off illness, but as medical knowledge increased, flowers became more of a luxury item.
In contemporary times, corsages often take the form of wristlets; but flowers for formal occasions have grown to include nosegay (handheld) tied bouquets and elegant hairpieces.
